Wonder, intrigue, curiosity and discovery – qualities that are so often missing from our busy lives.
That was before Authentic Models. They’re interested in appealing to the
mind as well as to the eye. Designed to mirror the unique beauty of
antique objects and curiosities, Authentic Models’ pieces come across as
both functional and decorative, lovingly recreated from materials that
don’t break from tradition.
Since the dawn of civilisation, humans have tried to organise the day by the motion of the sun, moon, and stars. Shadow clocks, better known as sundials, were invented by the Greeks and Romans, and were used by explorers during the age of discovery, and played a fundamental role in finding local time. As watches were notoriously unreliable, sundials were utilised to accurately determine the time - by pointing the triangular style (gnomon) with the number twelve due north, the style will point at the sunny hour.
The Sunny Hours Sundial is a replica model of such sundials, and is a lasting accessory for your office desk or coffee table. Made from bronzed metal with a polished finish, this classic piece will help you to determine the time in a traditional way. As beautiful as it is practical, this sundial is an elegant, nostalgic piece from a world of its own...
